Stories

  1. Another Week (Day 16)

    “You may go in now, Dr. Haylan.” The secretary said, without looking up from her iDesk. “Thank you.” He muttered as he headed to the door marked with a gold bar: Dr. Sephiroth. Dr. Sephiroth was a severe woman with high cheekbon...

  2. Another Day (Day 15)

    He whistled a merry tune as he walked into his office. He heard a rumor that today would be another busy day. He turned on all the lights, pulled on a face mask and walked to the small conveyor belt at the back of the office that went from one wall to ...

  3. If You Can (Day 14)

    If you can watch me dance to no music and not criticize me, you are a noble human. If you can listen to my rants and not laugh at me, you are a wonderful person. If you can hear me mess up sentences and not think I’m stupid, you are a fair judge....

  4. Fashion Asylum (Day 13)

    “How you doing today, Ms. Wagner?” A man came into the navy blue room wearing a crisp suit and designer shoes. The woman sitting on the leather couch fidgeted. The dark circles under her eyes explained how she was “doing”. ̶...

  5. Malaysia's Agoraphobia (Day 12)

    “Is the target in Venice being watched, Malaysia?” A voice on a speaker close to my ear asked slowly. I hummed loudly to a song I barely remembered in response. The clamps that had been placed on my eyelashes painfully wrenched my eyes open...

  6. Time To Panic (Day 11)

    “Add seven tablespoons of mustard.” I muttered, scanning the recipe for the hundredth time. I reread it a couple times before I realized it says “teaspoons”, not “tablespoons”. I stifled a groan as I quickly added th...

  7. Notebook Dilemma (Day 10)

    I love notebooks. I mean, I can’t get enough of them. Big ones, small ones, ones with spirals sewn through them, serious ones dressed all in black, and ones that look like they should have a fiesta hat on them. I wander down the aisle of notebook...

  8. Late Late Late (Day 9)

    “I’m late. I’m late. I’m late!” She cackled into the night air as she bounded across the Baquith Hills in the dead of night. She took no note of the shadows that seemed to run away from her as she disturbed the night with ...

  9. Airships: The Earl's Assistant

    Elletra tucked her knife in one of her boot’s hidden sheaths and walked over to Hawkeye. She put on her best smile as a dozen men in the opposing line gawked at the presence of a female on their ship. She clenched her jaw and kept her plastered s...

  10. Nobody Hurts My Sister. Nobody. (Day 8) (late)

    I squeezed my eyes shut, forcing all moisture to leave my vision. Now was the time to be strong. I needed to be there for her. “You OK?” She asked, as I laid back down. We were sharing a room that night. “I will be.” I mutter, w...

  11. Grief of a 7-Year-Old (Day 7) (late)

    Plop She scurried back to the top bunk. She leaped off. Plop Her foot slipped before she scrambled up the ladder. She jumped again. Plop She barely felt herself land on the mass of pillows before she was climbing the ladder again. Plop The tears began ...

  12. Blackmailing in Polite Packaging (Day 6) (late)

    “Cole speaking.” The woman said as she picked up her ringing office phone. A voice that sounded automatically squirrely said, “Hello, Dr. Cole. This is David Brown calling from Demi-Gen Pharmaceuticals. I wanted to let you know that y...

  13. Men Are Annoying (Day 5) (late)

    One thing was for sure, I had to get out of here. There was no way I was staying with this guy, even if we escaped the Arena together. No guy is right in the head who steals popsicles from the kids of the lady who was harboring us! And now that my brot...

  14. Coalition of Belly Dancers (Day 4) (late)

    There had been shadows dancing. She knew that much. She didn’t know if was her shadow but there had definitely been dancing. And shadows. Obviously. She let her head roll around as she woke up in a chair. Tied up. How strange. She opened her eyes...

  15. Nerd Wars (Day 3)

    “I am the biggest nerd here, obviously.” Said the girl dressed in a strange warrior-like outfit. She had plastic ridges glued to her forehead and fake teeth that had sharp angles. “I doubt it. I know all there is to know about Star Tr...

  16. Airships: Spiraling Rush

    Elletra didn’t have time to scream, the air was rushing all around her, drowning all noise. She flailed, like a flightless bird for a few moments before the wind filled the flaps of the harness and she straightened out. Elletra was squinting from...

  17. Airships: Squirrel Jumpers

    She bit back the words that she could take care of herself , knowing she would need someone’s help to confront the wicked Earl. She knew that he would be all too happy to have her under his control again. Elletra walked out and headed for the bri...

  18. Back To Work (Day 2)

    She had been sick the first day of the year.’ A fine way to start’, she thought bitterly as she trudged through the woods on a beaten path. She repositioned her aviation goggles on her head, careful to not touch the lenses with her ink-stai...

  19. Investigations: Theoretically, Yes.

    “Molina, I am busy.” “Clearly.” Inspector Molina nodded as the captain sifted through a sea of papers on his desk. “Whatever it is, make it quick.” He growled. “You announced two months ago that the man Calhous...

  20. Rubies in the Warehouse

    He let the phone ring twice before picking it up, “Rob Winter’s Jewelers. We buy and sell. How may I help you?” A feminine voice, that was different, answered mildy, “I was curious if you had any Rubies in stock.” “A...

  21. Airships: A Bigger Game's Afoot

    “So, what will we do when we find this ship that’s going to get or already has retrieved this Nightmare cargo?” Elletra asked, to no one in particular. Jerem answered first, “We won’t be able to blast them out of the sky b...

  22. Investigations: Inspector Molina

    “Take him to a padded cell.” She forced herself not to crush the would-be suicide pill in her fist. The man seemed slightly confused but was smiling as the guards came and handcuffed him. “I’ll see you later, Inspector!” &...

  23. Investigations: Not A Dead End

    “Minusc.” The investigator lifted her head, “What?” “I told you he sent me there. To the scene of the crime. It was Minusc who sent me.” As if the Snakes of Doom wasn’t bad enough, the woman thought. “Min...

  24. Airships: A Chase Begins

    The Frenchman grimaced and looked up at Hawkeye, “Where would this clipper be?” “If what Ryle is saying is true, that ship is probably already in the Otherside. She’ll be heading towards the wreck ship extremely fast.” ...

  25. Teachers Make My Eye Twitch

    Do not tell me to find specifc details in three months’ worth of info. Do not ask me to take eight finals at the same time. Do not make me study eight pages worth of events and dates. Do not tell me that most of your students fail the course. Do ...

  26. Addiction

    Writing is a drug. A habit. An addictive force. And your words keep pulling me back here. But if I begin again, I’m afraid writing will take over. Invade my mind. Take over my soul. I threw away all my notebooks, and destroyed all my stories. But...

  27. The Signs Say Keep Out

    Gavin almost thought he was hallucinating when he heard the muffled sound of the door being knocked on. He arched an eyebrow as he pulled his hulking body off the chair he had been dozing off on. He heard the knock again. He could just ignore it, he th...

  28. Audrey G. Burnett: A Cryptic Note

    Audrey grinned and hugged the old man. “You are the best.” “Go on out of here before I change my mind. You’ve spent enough time here for today, I think. We’ll start your lessons after the parade.” Crow smiled faintly...

  29. Airships: Old Associates

    Elletra automatically stiffened at the mention of Nightmare. “You have about two seconds to explain.” Elletra said in a hurried tone. Hawkeye frowned, lost in thought, as he leaned against the edge of a table in the Armory. It was the quiet...

  30. All the ways I die....

    I wake up with sweat making the sheets stick to my skin. It takes me a while to realize what happened. I groan in agony and flop back between the pillows on my bed but rest won’t come. This dream was unexpected. Shot to death underwater….. ...
